I’ll be giving an updated version of my scaling agility presentation at Agile 2009. I’ll be speaking on the Agile Adoption Stage in the Toronto Room at 2 PM Wednesday, August 26th. You can see the full program schedule here.
The abstract for my presentation is below. Also, we’ll be having a meeting of the Lean Software And Systems Consortium board on August 24th and 25th, so if you have any input for that meeting regarding corporate or academic membership, body of knowledge, certification or whatever, please let me know.

Topics include: intentionally emergent architectures, lean requirements at scale, coordinating releases with the agile release train, agile training and rollout strategies and measuring business performance.
